Equestrian Sports


Longines’ passion for equestrian sports dates back to the early years of the brand, in the 19th century. In 1869, Longines created its first watch with an equestrian motif. Some time later, it launched its first chronograph movement, enclosed in a case decorated with a horse and jockey. Since 1881, this timepiece has been the standard for jockeys and equine sports enthusiasts in the United States. In 1912, Longines entered into its first partnership with a show jumping event in Lisbon, thus securing its links with the equestrian world.

Throughout its history, Longines has continually pushed the limits of accuracy in sports timekeeping. The brand has also become the partner to the most prestigious  events around the world, working hand in hand with the major players of the equestrian world. Today, Longines is associated with show jumping, eventing and dressage, as well as with flat racing.

    Horse Racing

    Racing has been nourished for centuries by the propensity of equines to run fast and, if possible, faster than the others. Horse racing is therefore not just a pretext for humans to live the equestrian passion; it is without doubt one of the most widespread equestrian activities in the world, creating a unique fever that unites excellence and competition.

    Show jumping

    Show jumping is a captivating and spectacular equestrian discipline that requires excellence, finesse, power, intelligence and, above all, a perfect complicity between the rider and his or her mount.

    Eventing combines elegance of dressage, precision of show jumping, speed and courage of cross-country, and requires both the horses to be extremely versatile and the riders to have exceptional skills.

    At the border between sport and horsemanship, Dressage is a discipline that requires a lot of concentration and skill. Elegance, precision and nobility of gesture: essential values for the horse and rider.
